9/11 Memorial, New York

Some jobs make
you pensive.

Special orders nearly always make us happy. Often there’s some tricky issue to resolve that challenges us technically. We then work closely with the client and enjoy making progress. At a certain point, the client is satisfied because we are able to present them with a solution they didn’t think possible.

But there was one special order that silenced us. When KME Mansfeld was commissioned to make the 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero in New York, we were very proud that the USA trusted our expertise. It was also moving to be able to help to make a memorial of such global significance.

Coordinating everything closely with our customer was a challenge just like other orders. From a tech­nical point of view, the 9/11 Memorial was a challenging project. From an emotional point of view, even more so. We certainly were pleased with the monument at the end, as was our customer. But we celebrated in silence.
